Mandi and CEO Tom Shapiro highlight the journey of Stratabeat, Tom’s digital marketing agency. There’s so much to learn from Tom and the way he’s been able to grow his company; doubling in size in just 18 months.

All while Tom was able to work less and depend on the incredible team he’s building. He used the “spare” time to write two books and develop leaders who continue to provide incredible results for their clients.

 

 

Maybe it is possible to do it all. It wasn’t always this way for Tom. On this episode, he shares how he had to stop being in the day to day of his business in order to allow for the exponential growth.

Find out Tom’s unique and effective attitude and approach to sales. It’s key to the success of his agency.

Hear how Tom realized he needed to empower his team and the collaborative way they work today.

Learn how Stratabeat uses immersive training to ensure the entire team can implement the successful Tom developed. It’s how they continue to deliver massive results for their clients. It’s not about downloading everything; it’s about implementing the concepts as you learn and teach them.

Don’t miss the shampoo story. Tom told a client they were asking the wrong questions when they wanted to hire him. Their willingness to listen and follow his advice (and hire him) was game-changing!

Not many CEO’s use the terms zen, bliss and calm when they talk about their companies continued growth. But they aren’t Tom. He credits his team and the framework they’ve created for their results. The focus is on their clients, delivering amazing results, while having fun. No stress here!

Mandi wraps things up with a great example of Tom’s bold and decisive leadership and how it has served in the past, and continues to be a big factor in his success.
